, voted for congressman, senators, representatives to go to washington and make sure to see to it that president obama, the 44th, did not become king barack the first. he calls that obstructionism. the constitution calls it separation of powers. he calls that political demagoguery, i call it governance at the consent of the government. so, i personally. abcdef, i don't do that, it's a little different, my scale. i narrowed it down i'm going to give him a b-d which stands for bovine droppings. >> mike: i don't know what that means, larry. and let's go to helen from above the law.com. and what do you grade the president? >> i'm going to give him an a, look, it bothers president obama does something against the will of prime minister boehner and mccain. we have an article 2 in the constitution, article 2 in the constitution gives him the power to do, you know, something. right? >> yeah, something indeed, but, but kelly ann, let me ask you, is the something he gets to do is to act without regard to two other branches of government that are equal to the president in power? >> tha
everything that you hear out of washington. today again president obama rang the alarm bells on the four spending cuts that are set to take effect seven days from now. >> i've been very clear that these kinds of arbitrary automatic cuts would have an adverse impact on families, on teachers, on parents who are reliant on head start programs, on our military readiness, on mental health services on medical search. >> you heard a bit of it there, especially from democrats you're hearing we'll have trouble fighting wildfires, airplanes, security lines will be long, all sorts of things. how much of that is true? how much of it is politics? how do we react to that? "outfront," daniel altman, economics professor at nyu, it political columnist for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." you listened to all this talk about all these dire implications, is it real or is it scare tactics? >> some of it is definitely real. if you look at the figures we're looking at maybe 70,000 kids getting kicked out of head start programs. we're looking at a $1.6 billion cut in funding for the national institutes of heal
again. >> president obama used his bully pulpit this week to call on congress to avoid, get this, sequestration. that's washington nomenclature for automatic spending cuts due to go into effect on march 1, next friday. on that date, both military and domestic programs will feel the impact of the monumental $85 billion cuts slated for this year, 2013, alone. not only does the president condemn the cuts, but his administration is also sounding the alarm. first, the secretary of state. >> but in these days of the looming budget sequester that everyone actually wants to avoid, or most, we can't be strong in the world unless we are strong at home. my credibility as a diplomat, working to help other countries create order is strongest when america at least puts its own fiscal house in order, and that has to be now. >> next, the secretary of defense. >> members of congress need to understand that they were elected to protect the public, not to hurt the public. and i hope they will remember that as they hopefully work towards a resolution of this issue. >> the president and his cabinet a
all over the headlines, and today the obama administration about how to combat foreign theft of trade secrets. eric holder announced a plan in washington, and it comes on the heels of a report by an american securities firm pointing the finger at china. i am joined by tom, who was a member of the commission on cyber security. the administration tiptoed over whether china was responsible for these cyber attacks. >> i think they are signaling to the rest of the world but we are more willing to not only publicly embarrass those regimes but the use hard and soft power. >> what did you say could be done to protect u.s. computer systems? >> we recommend a number of things, first to modernize authority for criminal penalties as well as to regulate statutes, to improve the way they protect data. many have taken a lackadaisical approach to securing them, over relying on things to protect themselves. >> are those vulnerable? >> every system is vulnerable. they said there are those of us who know they have been hit and those who do not know. there are only two types, and we need to understand th
and the process of the secretary general's comments to the washington post last week. >> two good, model questions in terms of their brevity. the question also raises the issue of proliferation in the region. one reason the obama administration says the iranian nuclear capability is such a threat is because it would cascade to proliferation around the middle east, but love it if you could address that as well. >> i will answer the questions posed very quickly. i am just a dot middle east expert. this session on iran is talking about iran, but i have a great deal of sympathy for the sentiment. i do believe north korea is a very big problem. we often have the debate if iran is irrational. from what i understand about north korea, you could barely fill a symbol. my sense is they are not always entirely rational either and there are some things going on in that regime that could lead them to do things that are irrational and that worries me enormously. the issue of proliferation gets to north korea as well. proliferation is a very big concern about iran's nuclearization. it is one reason i suggested i

in the "washington post" obama ruse. it's not that different from what rubio's group is talking about. but republicans can slam obama's plan as some sort of kenyan socialist inspired abdication of sovereignty. >> that's a good one. will laugh at that a week. >> they can blast the provisions on boarder security as laughable. they can describe the absence of a real plan for reforming the legal immigration process as slapdash or unserious or whatever they want to call it. so if the president really wants immigration reform to pass one of the most helpful things he could do is put out his own plan as decoy to draw republican fire while the senate works on bipartisan consensus, which looks suspiciously like what just happened. >> i said when rubio went on fox and other shows,it was a kabuki dance. marco rubio's plan is a great plan, look what he's doing and ignored he's doing it at 95% of what the president is doing. i'm fine. whatever gets you through the night, awesome. but let us not pretend that one of these plans is much different than others because it's just not. >> no, it's not. it

. >>> to washington now where there are just seven days to go before wide-reaching budget cuts take effect. president obama has reached out to top republican leaders to try to kickstart some talks. the phone call marked the first time they've talked on the issue since the fiscal cliff deal next year. the president says it never should have gotten to this point. >> there's no other profession, no other industry where people wait until the 11th hour to solve these big problems. >> but neither side is reporting any progress. instead, aides simply exchanged some taunts via twitter. not a lot of reason for hope here that they're going to get this done. but there's still a few days. >> like the president said, there's nowhere else in the world where you think about it, if it's going to affect that many people and so much money is on the line that we wait for this long for anything to happen. in fact, today our abc's jonathan karl spoke to secretary leon panetta about these cuts. he said if they go into effect, it would turn the united states into a second rate power. >> strong words there. president obama
with the rain from this snow maker. >> mike, thank you. >>> there is no sign of a break in washington in the battle of bucket budget cuts. president obama is pushing congress to make smaller cuts. bill is at the white house. >> reporter: good morning. this hour the president is speaking making the case that congress should keep the spending cuts from going into effect. >> it's so troubling that just ten days from now congress might allow a series of automatic severe budget cuts to take place. >> reporter: in less than two weeks, more than $85 billion in across the board cuts are set to take effect. the pentagon would see roughly half of those reductions and that's a major point of contention among republicans. still, it's the mandatory cuts in domestic spending that would hit americans the hardest. there could be furloughs of food safety employees leading to a shortage of meat poultry and eggs and pushing up food prices. 50,000 tsa workers could see their hours cut back. that would mean longer security lines for air travelers. and more than 350,000 people who need
into here in washington, president obama is doing an end around the national press today. he's taking questions from local tv stations, blaming congress for doing nothing to avoid these forced spending cuts scheduled to take effect in just nine days. so what kind of cuts is the president willing to take? jim acosta confronted the white house press secretary today with that question. jim is joining us now. how did it go? >> reporter: wolf, here we go again. the white house and congress move one day closer to the massive forced spending cuts that go into effect at the end of next week. and even though they both agree it's a problem, they are both busy blaming each other to fix it. the white house sounding the alarm. poor children will be tossed out of classrooms, health services will be slashed, border security will be compromised and the economy will take a hit if forced budgets cuts begin to happen on march 1st and the obama administration says republicans will be to blame. >> the pleas that the republicans are making are throw these people out of work. it's just -- it makes no sense.
a nominee that the "washington post" is said to the left of obama policy agenda and on the fringe of the senate. >> heather: joining me now is brad blakeman and erlina maxwell i'll start with you. it does appear that chuck hagel will be confirmed as secretary of defense. will this delay his performance during his confirmation hearing make him a less effective or respected secretary of defense? >> process isn't over and the delay is a caused by hagel himself. additional information was needed in his testimony. the senators have a right to review that material and use that in their judgment. assuming he is confirmed, certainly his performance before the senate was not of the caliber as anybody would thought as somebody seeking the department of defense. it was not where it should have been. he knows that. certainly the white house knows that. having said that, i think the jury out. they are going to be looking to see when she confirmed as to whether he is up for the job. really the burden is on him to show that he is. i think there are a lot of people that will be sitting back uncom

about the keystone and set it to president obama to drive canada into the arms of china. i want to ask paul -- or in washington are skeptical about that. they say that they will send this oil to china, but will they get the pipeline built? what are you seeing on how likely this will be for a pipeline to the east coast or west coast anytime soon? >> there are substantial options. it is open. there are substantial opposition. it is not a vote-getter in british columbia where it needs to look at it. look at the rhetoric around the post keystone period. it was a little overheated. they tried to demonize environmental groups and stuff like that. there hasn't been a fundamental questioning, but there has been a sense that it was too hard. watching from afar, one of the things that stood out in the state of the union address tonight was what he said he read what he said. if we cannot get congressional action, we will take executive action. one of the actions he can take is reject the keystone pipeline. that would allow him to -- that is something that -- [talking over each other] >> it was re

, why would anybody participate in politics? why would we come to washington? some of these people -- this obama guy has tons of influence. so we all have influence. you can think about that, we all have an equal influence, and the court rejected that idea. increasingly, because the court has rejected the equality rationale, or form arguments -- reform arguments which are primarily in my view at least at the academic level based on equality themselves, or disguise themselves in the corruption argument, and as a result they further confuse. they talk about it being corruptive. when you look at that actual legislation where ideas get ground into legislation, oftentimes equality all has something to do with it. we have to stand by your ad provision. brad smith and i approve this message because you idiots could not figure out that the campaign was approved by me. that is how i would do my disclaimer if i were running. which is why i don't run. why was that there? the congressional record is very clear. they thought it would reduce the attack ads on them, reduce negative adds, and you
cannot afford the kind of delay and disruption that stance on the horizon in washington. the exciting new trade negotiation that president obama announced last week between the united states and the european union will create the world's biggest bilateral deal with it comes to fruition, a trans-atlantic partnership that will match the scope and ambition of our trans-pacific partnership talks. but our work is far from over. seven of the 10 fastest-growing countries are on the african continent. and china understanding that, is already investing more than we do there. four of the five biggest oil and gas natural discoveries happened off the coast of mozambique last year. developing economies are the epicenters of brokers and their open for business. and the united states needs to be at that table it. pipa want a new list upper assistance graduates -- if we want a new list of assistance graduates, companiecountries tht used to receive aid from us, we cannot shy away from telling this story to the american people, to your members of congress, and to the world. let me emphasize, jobs and trade
